Rangers rumors: Jurickson Profar, David Price, Giancarlo Stanton

USA TODAY Sports

The Rangers would trade Jurickson Profar in a package for David Price or Giancarlo Stanton "in the blink of an eye."

If the Texas Rangers were able to get a player such as Tampa Bay Rays left-handed starting pitcher David Price or Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton in exchange for a package built around top prospect Jurickson Profar, the team would make that trade "in the blink of an eye," according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com.

Sullivan was asked by a reader if the recent extension signed by the Rangers and shortstop Elvis Andrus signaled that Texas was interested in shopping Profar for high-profile players such as Price and Stanton. He answered that the team wouldn't hesitate to acquire either player, even at the expense of a talent such as Profar.

Price and Stanton are under team control through 2015 and '16, so the Rangers wouldn't view either potential acquisition as a short-term rental. For this reason, Sullivan believes they would be willing to trade a package of players headlined by Profar.

It doesn't appear that Price will be made available until at least this offseason, but it's hard to say what the future holds for Stanton. The Marlins aren't expected to contend this season, and Miami has shown a penchant for trading away top players for younger prospects that are under team control for a longer period of time at a reduced rate.
